Biomass Power Plant – Biogas Solution for Agricultural Waste
Agricultural biomass such as manure, stover, harvest byproducts (fruit & vegetable wastes, etc.) are used as basic feedstock for anaerobic digesters.
Farm-based biogas systems allow:
Production of energy for internal use during peak hours and for resell
Reduction of odors, weed seeds and pathogens
Production of higher quality fertilizer that is better accessible by plants
Reduction of greenhouse gases
BIOGAS Equity 2 seeks agricultural producers willing to integrate anaerobic digestion as part of their waste management system. While we prefer to finance, own and operate the system, we are willing to compromise to make progress in reducing escaping methane that is more than 20 times as damaging to the environment as carbon dioxide. Because of the low biogas potential of manure, it is advantageous to have access to animal wastes and/or other organics to boost the biogas production.
Agricultural sector notes:
Wood chips and sand bedding are not compatible with anaerobic digestion and need to first be separated.
